2015 NFL Consensus Mock Draft Rev #25
April 27, 2015

Our mock drafts typically do not feature trades, so it is a little awkward to pump out a version right before the draft with Marcus Mariota leaving the board at #5 to the Redskins. Nearly everyone on our staff thinks that Mariota will be the second player off the board on Thursday. Hopefully the days ahead will provide a little more clarity as to which team will trade up to the Titan's #2 in order to select Mariota.

Just like our "competition", Drafttek is keen on doing well in those mock draft grading contests. Expect our final mock on Thursday to roll out with a Titans/Mariota trade.

1 Tampa Bay
Jameis Winston
    Florida St
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
228
Alternate Pick #1
Marcus Mariota
Alternate Pick #2
Brandon Scherff
Fact of the Week! No Buccaneer quarterback ever drafted has ever been signed to a second contract, per this source. This list of 20 players includes three Super Bowl winners: Steve Young, Doug Williams, and Trent Dilfer. All with other teams, of course. But this "curse" would also apply to Marcus Mariota, should he be drafted, so this argument can't be used as an indictment against Jameis Winston. What's a Buc GM to do ???
2 Tennessee
Leonard Williams
    USC
    DE34
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
302
Alternate Pick #1
Marcus Mariota
Alternate Pick #2
Brandon Scherff
Will Tennessee be the team that makes the second pick on Thursday night? Right now, there are so many rumors swirling around Marcus Mariota, with different teams looking to trade up, specifically, the Chargers, Eagles, and Browns. However, until there is some concrete evidence of a trade happening, we will assume Tennessee will turn in their card second. Leonard Williams, arguably the top defensive player in the draft, has been tied heavily to the team, and is a big body to bolster the team's foundation.
3 Jacksonville
Dante Fowler Jr
    Florida
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
261
Alternate Pick #1
Vic Beasley
Alternate Pick #2
Alvin Dupree
Williams and Fowler have been mocked with this pick for the bulk of the draft season, and you really can't go wrong with either guy. However, the decision may come down to the better fit schematically, and that would be none other than UF's edge rusher, Dante Fowler. Getting after the QB is Fowler's forte and his skill-set should translate well to the NFL. Gus Bradley has been searching for a player of this magnitude to fill the Leo position on his defense, and Fowler fits that position to a "T".
4 Oakland
Kevin White
    West Virginia
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
209
Alternate Pick #1
Amari Cooper
Alternate Pick #2
Vic Beasley
Picking at #4, the Raiders will make one of four decisions at this spot: take the prospect who might be the best in the draft (Williams), take the most polished receiver (Cooper), opt for the receiver with the highest ceiling (White), or trade down. Since Williams is off the board and we are not doing trades in this mock, the choice remains Cooper v. White. Oakland could go either direction, but I think this will be a swing for the fences pick with McKenzie selecting the talented Mountaineer.
5 Washington
Marcus Mariota
    Oregon
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
211
Alternate Pick #1
Amari Cooper
Alternate Pick #2
Vic Beasley
Jay Gruden is coaching for his job in 2015, and maybe his future as a coach in the NFL. If he doesn't show TREMENDOUS improvement in his second year, he might never be a head coach again. What do desperate head coaches do in the NFL? Buy themselves time by making a change at quarterback. Gruden has made it clear that RGIII is not his QB and if Mariota, a potential elite QB, is still on the board, Jay might find the possibility of a fresh start under center irresistible.
6 NY Jets
Vic Beasley
    Clemson
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
246
Alternate Pick #1
Amari Cooper
Alternate Pick #2
Alvin Dupree
New GM Mike Maccagnan talked with the media last week about his strategy for the upcoming Draft. It looks like the Jets are open to the possibility to both trade up or trade down. Should they stay put at 6 and the board falls this way on Draft night, then OLB may be the pick. Maccagnan said he studied the Steelers' past ability to create a pipeline of 3-4 edge rushers. Beasley looks to be a good starting point if he plans on rolling this strategy out in New York.
7 Chicago
Amari Cooper
    Alabama
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
211
Alternate Pick #1
Trae Waynes
Alternate Pick #2
Danny Shelton
Amari Cooper could go as high as #2 to the Titans and will be on the list of every other team drafting prior to the Bears. Cooper is a workaholic dedicated to honing his craft. Barring injury, he is generally regarded as the surest thing; if he were a stock, he be General Electric to Kevin White's Facebook. White potentially has higher upside, but Cooper will quietly crank out 1000-yard season year after year. If he's available, Cooper is money for Chicago.
8 Atlanta
Shane Ray
    Missouri
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     -15
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
245
Alternate Pick #1
Trae Waynes
Alternate Pick #2
Brandon Scherff
In the final days before the Draft, the simulation gives the Falcons Shane Ray. Again. Ray's stock has fallen some because of mediocre workout numbers. But those numbers seem tied to a toe injury he suffered at the end of the season. Some reports have Ray needing foot surgery and probably not being ready for the season opener. Others have him ready to go by training camp. Ray thus enters a sort of boom-bust area. Perhaps the Falcons would reverse their aversion to character red flags dating back to Mike Vick's transgressions and draft Randy Gregory here?



9 NY Giants
Alvin Dupree
    Kentucky
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'4''
Weight:
269
Alternate Pick #1
Brandon Scherff
Alternate Pick #2
Ereck Flowers
The Giants actually ended the season with fairly good pass rush numbers (47 sacks), but ask any Giants fan and they will tell you that the numbers are misleading. JPP can be a dangerous pass-rushing threat, but beyond JPP are only question marks: Can Damontre Moore claim a full-time role? Will Robert Ayers bounce back healthy? If the Giants decide they want to upgrade their front 7, Alvin "Bud" Dupree is the only first-round target with the requisite size and athleticism to fit their system.
10 St Louis
Brandon Scherff
    Iowa
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
320
Alternate Pick #1
Ereck Flowers
Alternate Pick #2
Danny Shelton
The Rams two biggest needs are along the offensive line and in the receiver corps. In the unlikely event that Amari Cooper or Kevin White drop to the number 10 position, it's a good bet that GM Les Snead looks that way. But for the more likely scenario that Cooper/White are off the board, Brandon Scherff fill a huge need as the draft's top OT talent. There no guarantee that Scherff escape the G-men at #9, but if he does the Rams will sprint to the podium.
11 Minnesota
Randy Gregory
    Nebraska
    OLB43
    Reach/Value:     -6
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
255
Alternate Pick #1
Trae Waynes
Alternate Pick #2
Marcus Peters
Looking at the Vikings' options, I feel like the race is wide open. Personally, I don't buy all the Trae Waynes talk. There are too many defensive backs that the coaching staff seems to like in this draft, I just don't think there's a need to rush for one here. Brandon Scherff is intriguing, but if they want to play him at guard, I'd be surprised if they jump on him here. It's just not a priority position. This leaves me with a pass rusher, of which Randy Gregory is arguably the best in this class.
12 Cleveland
DeVante Parker
    Louisville
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
209
Alternate Pick #1
Danny Shelton
Alternate Pick #2
Ereck Flowers
Trade for Sam Bradford? Trade for Mariota? Two persistent rumors make their rounds. This pick comes down to DT34 Danny Shelton, CB Tre Waynes, or our current selection, DeVante Parker. For the long term, we like the envelope-stretching dimension that the physical Parker brings. He could even make Browns' QBs better than they are. As we see here, there's no other receiver that has drawn more interest from GM Ray Farmer and Co.
13 New Orleans
Trae Waynes
    Michigan St
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +4
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
185
Alternate Pick #1
Marcus Peters
Alternate Pick #2
Arik Armstead
New Orleans will look at defense at pick #13 (a pass rusher first and foremost), but they won't hesitate to take a top offensive player, either. In this CMD, Spartan CB Trae Waynes is the top-rated available on the DraftTek Big Board. Some feel the addition of Brandon Browner in Free Agency kills any idea of drafting a corner with pick #13. Thus, the Saints could trade up to grab a guy like Vic Beasley or Shane Ray. However, it's more likely they trade down to gain another pick later.
14 Miami
La'el Collins
    LSU
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     -15
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
305
Alternate Pick #1
Todd Gurley
Alternate Pick #2
Marcus Peters
Worst possible scenario for Miami? Not quite. Gurley is available, but this would likely cause some frowns in the "War Room". Collins is a consolation prize, a runner-up to WRs Cooper, White, and Parker, --or CB Waynes. If the board falls this way, I'd expect Tannenbaum and Co. to attempt a trade back. If that's not possible, then adding another early-round OL prospect may happen. It's not flashy, but a starting 5 of Albert/Turner (Thomas?)/Pouncey/Collins/James could be one of the best in the NFL.
15 San Francisco
Danny Shelton
    Washington
    DT34
    Reach/Value:     +5
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
339
Alternate Pick #1
Malcom Brown
Alternate Pick #2
Arik Armstead
Edging towards the draft certain players tend to drop, and this time it's DT Danny Shelton. Not that the 49ers are complaining! Shelton goes a meaty 6'2, 340 lb. and has the power (combine BP 34 reps) to control the LOS, but also shows lateral quickness and balance to make plays on the move. Constantly requiring double teams and is yet still a pass rush threat, Shelton is purpose-made for the 3-4, and is one of the best nose tackle prospects to come out in the last 5 years.
16 Houston
Dorial Green-Beckham
    Oklahoma
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -35
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
215
Alternate Pick #1
Todd Gurley
Alternate Pick #2
Malcom Brown
The Texans must give Mallett weapons to be successful. Going against historical trends, the Texans select the biggest boom or bust prospect this millennium. DGB's boom potential could blow the roof off the league, similar to Moss in OB1's system. DGB has learned from his mistakes and if he continues to live through faith he will take full advantage of his God given gifts, in a Texans uniform! Welcome to H-Town DGB. ~CME, Texans' Analyst.
